There may be worrisome health trends coming for some U.S. Hispanic adults who get COVID-19.
When we first started hearing about COVID-19 in the U.S., the symptoms of the virus – and thus, the criteria for testing – seemed pretty straightforward: If you have a fever and a cough, get tested (if your doctor has access to a test).
